I received an eARC of this boxed set from the author in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
The complete series: The Alpha's Daughter, Alpha Ascending and The Alpha's Curse.
After being kidnapped as a child, Christy Daine was sent away from her shifter clan to live among humans. For over a decade she has lived in fear of the people who tried to kill her. Living with her bodyguard, Ronan, the two embark on a secret relationship that could get them both killed.
When her father, the alpha of all the clans demands she return home to marry a man he’s chosen for her, Christy will finally have to face her past and her true nature. Danger lurks around every corner and even Ronan might not be the man she thought he was.
As the alpha’s daughter, can she really choose between the man she loves and the man she is supposed to be with? And who can she really trust?
My Three Favorite Things
1. I loved Ronan! Not only is he one handsome gent, he is absolutely devoted to Christy. I typically find characters in novellas to be very under-developed. Ronan, however, was very well written. I enjoyed the spice and power he brought to this series.
2. I have an absolute love of all things fem power. Christy starts off this series as rather timid, but then grows up to be a foe no one would want to face. And, who expects a well-behaved "princess" to threaten to burn someone's balls off?!
3. I think it's really important to commend Shand on her wonderful world building. Too often, this gets neglected in novellas because the emphasis is placed on the story instead of the setting. However, Shand was able to combine the two and truly make a wonderful story.
I hope to read a full-length novel by Shand in the future.
